♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in >>> under the boardwalk. hurricane obama buries romney. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the hurricane and this president. hemingway called it grace under pressure, the highly educated call it good government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cite
colter was right. >> well, i'll put it in a nutshell, if we don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee and he'll lose. >> the president dramatically down. >> you'll see a romney land slide. >> it's going to be a great day tomorrow. >> shellacking, repudation, melt down. >> i believe we can seize this future together. >> four more for 44. >> a decisive victory. >> 2008 was not a fluke. >> his emphatic victory tonight. >> it was over in about five minutes. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. >> i won't just be your senator, i will be your champion. >> what was the key to success last night? >> cold, hard demographics. >> making barack obama. >> should be to deny president obama a second term. >> a one-term president. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. >> if we don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee and he will lose. >> yes, ann colter was right. she was wrong about what would have happened if the republicans had nominated chris christie, president obama would have beaten him, too. and now even aven colter knows that. >> he's
chairmen that all look like those guys. now, the chief strategist of romney's campaign, stu stevens, is describing why he lost. he wrote in "the washington post" today, quote, there was a time not so long ago when the problems of the democratic party revolved around being too liberal and too dependent on minorities. obama turned those problems into advantages and rode that strategy to victory. but he was a charismatic african-american president with a billion dollars, no primary, and media that often felt morally conflicted about being critical. how easy is that to replicate? in other words, the election was an anomaly giving republicans little reason to worry in the future. this morning stevens said mitt romney's ideas were right on, as he puts it. he's getting cool, he's right on in his talking. let's listen. >> i think that the ideas carried the day for us and that success that we had, though it obviously wasn't enough to win the race, was based on the candidate mitt romney and on his ideas. >> well, using that '60s language of right on, he isn't quite. he continued the outreach
an electoral loss would provide a wake-up call for the defeated party. but in the case of mitt romney, it appears to have opened the door to another dimension, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. a sort of twilight zone. in the realm of reality, there is the president who has just left new york's staten island touring areas damaged by the storm and pledging much needed federal support. and then there is the shadow realm where republicans are still stumbling over their loss by doubling down on the very backward, twisted, inverted views that proved to be their undoing. case in point, mitt romney. who told his top donors on a conference call that the president only won by doling out freebies to key constituencies. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> that base coalition, of course, including young voters, african-americans, and hispanics. >> what the president did is he gave them two thin

no one, both campaigns tried to spin the news this morning. governor romney said this in wisconsin. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2%. today we learned it's 7.9%, that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> speaking in ohio the president highlighted the spike in job creation. >> and today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> joining us now, from washington, the man with all the answers, cnbc's amman jabbers. what's your assessment of this jobs report? >> it's definitely a strong jobs report, stronger than expected consensus was about 125,000 jobs, we saw 171,000. that was a surprise to the upside. in the morning wall street liked that, the dow futures up on that news, but politically i think the interesting thing here is that all the conspiracy theorists are gone back in their holes today, we haven't heard from all those folks and part of the reason because there's something in here for everybody. the republican

this year. governor romney spent the whole gop primary season catering to the right, telling immigrants to self-deport, bragging that he'd get rid of planned parenthood, saying he'd cut everyone's taxes. so, how did that work out for him? here's how mr. romney was recently spotted pumping his own gas in california. no secret service, no advisers, and no words on whether he used regular or premium. romney thought he'd be on the road to the white house by now. instead, he's just on the road. meanwhile, the president is heading home on air force one after meeting with world leaders. he didn't pump the gas for that plane. here's the point. elections have consequences. the american people rejected romney's right wing views. but a lot of republicans didn't get the message. bill o'reilly is still defending romney's claim that the president won because of gifts to minorities. >> again, that's the truth. it is a stone cold fact that lower income americans, largely, re-elected president obama. now, the left is going to scream when you say that because they don't want to acknowledge the economics
for the romney campaign in >> david mentioned in his opening remarks 47%. it was coincidental i think that president obama last 47% and you said that the 47% mr. romney was referring to was republicans. that was coins dental? >> what it demonstrated is a fundamental misunderstanding of the country he wanted to lead. that's what that statement showed. and a lot of those 47%. what was he saying in the statement? what he was saying is there is 47% of the country i got to write those people off because they don't pay federal income tax. and because they don't pay their a bunch of takers. you in this room, you're the makers, you're being victimized by the takers and there is nothing i can do about those takers so forget about it. i think it was a disaster. and a lot of the people in that 47% are in fact the base of the republican party. >> david. >> this is not because we're having a blue hand love in. if the republican party were to listen to half of what steve said in his opening comments they would rehabilitate themselves quickly. i think there is going to be a civil war between the vie
and figure out why things happened the way they did but it is time to put mitt romney in the rearview mirror and proceed. there is a long bench on the republican side, many others of home -- who will be there to be the candidate. we need a clear view of where we're going. in 2014 there is as bright a view of the senate takeover by republicans as any time in the last 30 or 40 years. the number of republican scifres up for election as opposed to the democrats after two more years of a, -- obama, if republicans can take back the senate, they will make the last two years of the obama administration immeasurable time for the president. those are few of the things we look forward -- those are a few of the things. we look forward to taking your questions. >> thank you. >> this is one of the examples -- can you give examples of how mitt romney could have complained and the regret -- [inaudible] i do not think there's any question he took all the right stance. that is not the argument he took all the right positions and we were all happy to spread those commitments around. the problem was not communi

[buzzer] >> i am predicting 321-217 landslide for romney. george will. the general who's always been wrong about everything. ever. in the history of things. >> who said it won't be close i predict a romney victory by 120 electoral votes. >> ghandi. >> for the win who said we're going to win by a landslide romney's going to carry 325 electoral votes. >> dick sergeant? >> stephanie: because it was being morris. >> that's as wrong as saying general petraeus is a wonderful family man. multiple family man. >> stephanie: yikes. if we find out he slept with that astronaut woman that woman is. [ laughter ] >> ok, all right tom a happy clappy liberal. your shows last week allowed me to bask in the after glow and gloat endlessly in the privacy of my own home. >> stephanie: you're welcome. >> it was a cathartic experience after a long election. by the way you're a ravishing beauty without your baseball cap but with it you look like a sexy college co he had. >> college co ed? >> you're like those elderly people that go back to college after
